Progress on my skirts is going slow

I cut my skirts out two nights ago. Now to find time to sew. I've been so busy.
This pattern (above) I love! I'm making view D with the blue above.

When I bought the pattern I didn't notice view A and B were princess style, petal? skirts. So pretty. 

 This skirt above will be view A. The petals will be the white with roses, the inner skirt will be the pink.

 Above another view A skirt that will have pink fabric petals over a darker red skirt.

 And last but not least the 3rd -view A skirt I'm making has- red roses for the petal pieces and pale green for the inner skirt.

 This skirt is view D. From the same pattern shown at top.

This skirt will be (above) view C. (far right). Yellow will be the wide ruffle.

This pattern above will be view C the mid length skirt.
All 3 patterns were up to size 24/26. No drafting needed! ;o)

After all that I had enough fabric left over to make 4 pair more pants. That will make 9 total. Enough for now.

Now to sew the 7 cut out skirts.

This was the only piece of fabric left over after the pants. It's about 2 1/2 yards. No plans for it yet. Maybe another skirt after I re-draft 4 patterns.

After I sew the skirts my next project is the Metamorphis Dress by Sew Liberated. It goes up to 24 - yeah! I may grade out at the hips for looseness. I'm using up my 1980s - 90s sale fabrics from my stash. They are cottons that are much "lighter" than quilting cottons.

Happy Creating!! (((HUGS))) God Bless!
